Configure your computer before installation by performing the following tasks:

Installing CentOS
Disabling SELinux
Updating the NVIDIA Drivers
Resolving Keyboard Conflicts

Installing CentOS

Following are some considerations for CentOS Linux installation. Explaining how to install CentOS Linux is beyond the scope of this document—refer to the CentOS documentation.

Disabling SELinux

Updating the NVIDIA Drivers

You must install the recommended drivers for your NVIDIA video card, otherwise Harmony will not function.

In general, you should use the latest drivers. New drivers tend to resolve past driver issues. If you already have NVIDIA drivers installed, find the version number by typing:

cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep "X Driver"

Resolving Keyboard Conflicts

Some default keyboard shortcuts conflict with the shortcuts in Harmony and can prevent normal user operation.
